Hearing is critical for the development of speech, language, communication skills, and learning. The earlier the hearing loss is diagnosed and intervention is started, the more likely it is that your child will avoid delays in these developmental areas. Communication development and behavioral skills are influenced by a child’s ability to hear. Hearing loss can also affect a child’s social interactions, emotional development, and academic performance.
At University Children's Health we are committed to improving the lives of children who suffer from hearing or balance problems. Our audiologists, through our Hearing & Balance Center Services, have the experience and skills needed to successfully treat and diagnose hearing loss and minimize the impact that it has on a child's communication abilities.
Our audiologists have either completed advanced study in their field, have additional certification, and/or have significant experience treating hearing and balance problems in children of all ages.
